Polar Flow – Spanner In The Works. Here’s some WD40

Polar-Flow-Not-WorkingEdit: This is now fixed.


Polar Flow is still ‘down’ in the sense that it can’t communicate with other apps…well Strava. Manual export also does not work.

Has anyone tried syncmytracks? That always used to work before the new STRAVA link was announced a couple of months ago. Maybe the hack syncmytracks use still works???

Also (thanks Barrie) I never knew about the Bipolar app that takes data straight off the Polar watches without the need for Polar Sync (well the V800 at any rate).

Not sure if WD40 will be sufficient enough to get the spanner out of the works.

Strava sync works for me in case I use FlowSync on mac. No way in case of android flow sync =( Hope they will fix tcx export soon.

Looks like Polar have resolved the export issue.
